Okkervil River - Song About A Star


"Song About A Star" is a track on indie rock band Okkervil River's 2003 album, "Down the River of Golden Dreams". It is an angst-driven rock song with bitter lyrics about being forsaken for a glitzy celebrity life: "He cut your strings so that he could float / Lit by lights, lifted by alcohol / Over acres of loving coast / Far away from your lonely ghost". Blending in strings, accordion and drums, "Song About A Star" offers a good sampling of Okkervil River's distinctive style of literate, folk-influenced indie rock.
